The geological  conditions along this belt seem very  favorable for the occurrence of miner*  al, and such superficial work ns has  heen done indicates that the ore found  carries good gold values, so that taken  altogether the section is well worth  the serious attention of prospectors.".

The visit of these gentlemen was planned and arranged by  II.  55.

To   Mr.   Brock's indefatigable  energy   is   due to a great  extent the ease with  which the trip  was accomplished, a good deal of the  roughness incidental to such a journey  being entirely obliterated, so that the  visitors were able to see the properties  under   the   best   possible advantages.

The. gentlemen constituting the  party were men of the very highest  standing in the greatest copper camp  in the world. Men who in husinots  have the confidence and goodwill of a  people who are. industrious and, while  conservative to an extent, have that  American pluck ar.d enterprise that  has done so much to build up the  great republic to the south of us.  These gentlemen came to British  Columbia to see the district in which  they have spent ar.d invested a great  deal of money in the development of  their holdings, and thay have returned  to their homes in Michigan thoroughly  satisfied with the Northwestern Development Syndicate's property at Gold-  fields and with a firm belief in the big  gold values of the leads in the camp.  The visit to the Fish River district  and to the Goldfields free milling gold  camp, of these gentlemen is of inestimable value aud will be the means of  attracting additional capital to the  ceuutry.  On Monday the 27th ult. a visit was  paid to the Goldfinch workings by ibe  entire party "-"and almost the whole  dny was spent in an exhaustive inres*  ligation. On their return to tha hotel  in the evening the greatest satisfaction  was expressed; by one and all at the  systematic way in which'the'work  had been carried on and at the big  showings of rich gold ore.  On the following day (Tuesday)������  number of tbe party spent the day'on  the Eva property, Among them were  some of the underwriters of the stock  in the C.iluuiet: a'nd British Columbia  Gold Mines Limited, thu bond holders  of the l:\-n property.

The dining room to the  hotel not being finished the guests  were invited hy Mr. Brock to dine al  the Company's' camp where the chef.  Mr. F.

"-*"������������������"���������"���������" A  f\  'S  The Great Ptna.  -   By Mary B. wtflcla*.    -  It was in the sununer-time that the  " '   ������reat pine sang hia loudest song of winter,  for always  the voice of the tree  seemed to n rouse in the listener a realization    of     that    which    was    past,  end    to   come,    rather    than    of    the  present.       In     the     winter    the    tree  Seemed    to   sing    el   ths    elumberoui  peace under his gently fanning boughs,  and tbe deep swell of his aromatic bntath  ia burning noons, and when the lummtT  traveler up the mountain-aide threw kirn-  self, spent and heated, beneath his shade,  then   the .winter  song wag at its best.  When the wind swelled high came the  eong   of   Ihe   ice-fields,  of   the  frozen  mountain torrents, of the trees bent double   like   old   men   tak.  wearing   hoary  ���������beards, of the little wild things trem-  *bllng in their covers when the sharp re-  forte of the frost sounded through the  rigid hush of thc arotie night and death  was abroad.   The man who lay beneath  "-      the tree had much uncultivated imagina-  '     tion, and, though hampered by exceeding  i     ignorance, he yet  saw and heard that  which'was beyond mere observation. He  ".-    reflected upon the winter when exhaust-  -**    ed by the summer heat, with that keen  '--.    pleasure which  comet froni' the  mental  .  grasp of contrast to discomfort.   He did  --   not know that he heard the voice of tho  -3   tree and not his own thought, so did the  'A    ecraonality of the great pine mingle with  Lis   own. " He   was   a  sailor,   and   had  tlimbed   different   heights   from   mountains, even masts made from the kindred  cf ths tree.  Presently he threw his head back, nnd  stared up _md up, and reflected what a  fine mast the tree would make, if only  it were not soft pine. -, There was a stir  In a branch, and a bird which lived in  . the tree in summer cast a small wary  fiance at him from an eye like a point  ef bright intelligence, but thc man did  .    ,'tiot see it.   He drew a long breath, and  "looked irresolutely at the upward slope  beyond the tree.   It wag time for him to  be up and on if he wonld cross the mountain before  nightfall.    Ho was a way-  farer-without resources save those witli  which he had been born into the world.  He was as poor as the tice, or any of the  ���������wild creatures which were    in    hiding  around him on the mountain.   He was  -even poorer, for he had not their feudal  ��������� tenure of an nbiding-place for root and  7 foot on the mountain by the inalienable  right  of   past  generations of  his nice.  'TEven    the    little   wary-eyed   feathered  thing  had  its    small "freehold  in the  .branches of.the Great Pine, but the mini  ��������� had nothing.   He had returned to primi-  ���������   tive conditions) ho was portionless save  for that with which he came into the  world,  except  for two  garments  which  were nearly past their uso ns such.   His  skin   shewed   through   tho   rents;   the  -    - "iiockets were empty.     Adam    expelled  "from Eden was not ln much worse case,  :"3and tliis man also had at his back thc  ���������flaming sword of punishment for wrong-  '   tiloing.   Thc i:*an arose.

The man who  had evolced destruction to satisfy his  own'wrath .and bitterness of Bpirit, and  then repented, sat for a few minutes  outside the blackened circle around the  great pine, breathing hard. He drew his  rough coat-sleeve -across his .wet .fore-Xi  head, and stared up at the tree, -which** '  loomed above him like a prophet with  solemnly waving .arms of benediction,  prophesying ia a great unknown language of nis own.

After a while. be again paused and  looked hack. .The moon had arisen, and  he could see quite plainly tlio great pine  standing crowned with White light tossing hia boughs like spears and lances ef  silver. "Thunderin" big tree," he muttered, with a certain pride and self-approbation. He felt that that majestic  thing owed its being to him, to his forbearance with his own hard fate. Had  it not been for that it would have been  a mere blackened trunk. At that moment, for thc first time in his history, he  rose superior to his own life. Ia some  unknown fashion this seemingly trivial  happening had, as it were, tuned him to  a higher place in the scale of thing.-i  than he Sad ever held. He, through  saving the tree from himself, gained a  greater spiritual growth than the tree  had gained in height'since it first quickened with life. Who shall determine the  limit at which the intimate connection  and reciprocal Snflucnco o'f all forms of  visible creation upon one another may  stop? A man may cut down a tree and  plant one. Who .knows wlf.it effect the  tree may have upon the man to his raising or undoing?  Presently the man froiyied nnd shook  his head in a curious fashion, as if he  questioned his own identity; then he resumed his climb. After the summit was  gained ho wont down the other side of  the mountain, then northward throueh  a narrow gorge of valley to which the  moonbeams did not yet penetrate. This  valley, between miglity walls of silver-  crested darkness, was terrifying. Tlie  man felt his own uninllness and the  largeness of nature which seemed aboul  to fall upon him. Spiiit waa intimidated  by matter. The mini, rude and tinlet  tercd, brutalized arid dulled by his life,  yet realized it lie rolled his eyes aloft  from side,to side, and ran as if pursued.  When ho had reached the brow of u  little decline in the valley road, hi*  paused, and searched eagerly with straining eyes the side of the flpounlain on the  right. Then he drew a long breath of  relief. He had seen what he wished to  see: a feeble glimmer of lamplight from  a window of a house, the only one on  that lonely road for flve miles in either  direction. It was the dwelling-house on  a small' farm which hacl been owned by  the father of the woman whom" the mail  had married fifteen yenrs before. Ten  venrs ago, when he had run away, thf)?  had been his wife, his little girl," and hii  wife's mother living on thc fnrm. The  old farmer father hnd died two vcars before that, and the man, who find wild  blood in his veins, had rebelled at the  hard grind necessary to wrest a livelihood by himself from the mountain soil.  So one morning he was gone, leaving a  note stating that he had gone to sen,  and would write and send money; thnt  he could earn more than on a farm. But  he never wrote, and ho never sent thu  money. He had met with sin and disaster, and at Inst he started homeward,  shorn, and if not repentant, weary of  wrong-doing and its hard wages. He* had  rotreated from the brond way with an  ignoble impulse, desiring the snfety of  the narrow, and the loaves and fishes,  'which, after all, can be found in it with  greater certainty; but now as he has-  tiiied afoiijj he becanio conscious of  something bettor than that. One good  impulse begat others by some law ol  spiritual reproduction. He began to  tnink how ho would perhaps do more  work than he hnd formerly, and please  his wife arid her motliei'.  He looked at the light in the- window  ahead with-something akin to thankfulness.    He reipembered how very acntla  his wife had been, and how fond of him.  His wife's mother also had been a mild  woman, with reproving eyes only, never  with a tongue of reproach.   He remembered his little girl with a thrill of ten-  derne3S-and-curlosity.^She_would_be_a  big  girl  now;   she  would  be  like  her  mother.   He began picturing to himself  what they would do and say, what they  would give him for supper.   He thought  he would like a slice of ham cut from  one of those cured on the'farm, that and  some new-laid eggs. He would'have some  of those biscuits that his wife's mother  used7 to  make, and  some  fresh  butter,  and honey from the home bees.    He would  have tea and cream;   He seemed to smell  the tea and the ham.    A hunger whieL  was sorer than any hunger of the flesh  came over hiin.   All at onoo the wanderer starved for home.   He had been shipwrecked and at the point of death from  hunger, but never was hunger like thia.  He had planned speeches ot contrition;  now he planned nothing.   He feared no  blame from those whom he hnd wronged;  ho feared nothing except his own need  of them.   Faster and faster he went. He  seemed to be running a rucf.   At last he  woe quite close to tne house.   Thc light  was in  a window  facing  the  road, and  the curtain waa up.   He could see a- figure steadily passing and repassing it. lie  went closer, and saw that lt'.WM.a little  girl with a baby  in her arms, and she  was walking up and down hushing it.   A  feeble cry  tmote  his  cars,   though  the  doora and windows were closed.   It waa  chilly even in midsummer in the mountains.   He went around the house to the  side door.   He noticed that the field on  the left was waving with tali dry grass  which should have  been  cut long ago;  he  noticed   that   there   were   no   beanpoles in the garden.   He noticed that ths  house looked gray and shabby  even  in  the... moonlight,  that  some  blinds  were  [One and a window broken.   He leaned  a   second  against   the   door.    Then   he  opened it and entered.,, He came into a  little square entry; on one side was the  kitchen   door,  on   the other   the   room  where   the  light  was.    He  opened   the  5oor 'leading  to   this room.    He  stood  staring, for nothing which he had anticipated  met  his  eyes,  except  the   little  prl.'"   She stood gazing at him half  in  ilarm, half in  surprise,  clutching close  '.he baby, which was puny, but evidently  ibout a year old.   Two little boys stood  near the table on whieh the lamp was  imrning, and  they  stared at him  with  fride-open mouths and round eyes.   But  ihe sight which filled the intruder with  the xnoet amazement- and  dismay was  that Of a man in the bed in the corner.  He recognized him at once as a farmer  who bad lHved, at the time of his departure, flre miles away in the village.  He remembered that his wife was recently dead -when ha left. The man, whose  blue ghastly face was sunken in the pillows, looked up at him. He thrust out  a cadaverous hand as if to threaten. The  little girl .with the baby and the two  little boya.edged nearer the bed, as if for  protection.  "Who be .you." enquired the sick man,  with feeble menace. "What d'ye, want  comin' in.here this wayt" It Was like  the growl .of ie.sick dog.  The other man* went cloae t. the bed.  "Where is my 'Wife t" he asked, in a  strange voiee. It was expressive of hor-  4br and anger and a rage of disappointment.  "You ain't���������IDielct" gasped the mas in  ths bed.  "Yes, I be; and I know you, Johnny  Willet. Where is my wife! What are  jrou here fort"  "Your wife is dead," answered the  .man, in a choking voice.* He began to  cough; he half raised himself on one elbow. His eyes bulged. He crowed like  a child with the croup. The little girl  promptly laid the baby on the bed, and  ran, to a chimney cupboard for a bottle  of medicino, which she administered with  a spoon. The siok man lay back, gasping for breath. He looked as if already  dead; his jaw dropped; there Were awful blue hollows in his face.  "DeadI" repeated the visitor, thinking  of his wife, and not of this other image  o< death before him.  "Yes, she's dead."  "Where's my little girl?"  The sick man raised one shaking hand,  and pointed to the little girl who had  taken up tho whimpering baby.  "That?"  The siok man nodded.  The other eyed the little girl, rather  tall for her nge, but very slim, her narrow shoulders already bent with toil.  She regarded him with serious blue eyes  in a little face, with an expression of  gentleness so pronounced that it gave  the impression of a smile. The man's  eyos wandered from the girl to the baby  in her arms and the two little boys.  "What be you all n-doin' hero!" he  demanded, gruffly, and made a movement toward the bed. The little girl  turned pule, and clutched the baby more  closely. The sick man made a /feeble"  sound of protest and deprecation. "What,  be you all a-doin' here?" demanded, the  other again.  "I married your wife after we heard  your ship was lost. We knew you was  aboard her from" Abel Bennison. He  come home, and said you was dead for  sure, some eight.year ago, and then she  said she'd marry me. I'd been after her  some time. My wife died, and my house  burned down, and I was left alone without any home, and I'd always liked her.  Sho wasn't any too willin', but finally  she givo in."  The man whom he had called Dick  glnred at him speechlessly.  "We both thought you was dead,  sure," said the sick man in a voice of  mild deprecation, which was ludicrously  out of proportion to the subject,  pkk looked at -tlie elriidren.  Wc had 'om," said the sick man. "She*  ain't got any more clothes than what  you've got on, have you?"  "No, I ain't," replied Dick, shortly.  "Well, there's mine in the closet out  of this room, and you might'jest as well  Vear 'em till I get up. There's sosae  shirts, and some pants."  "All right," Baid Dick.  The next morning Dick got the breakfast, cooking eggs with wonderful skill  and frying oorn cakes. Then, dressed in  the siok man's shirt and trousers, he  set forth, axe in hand. He toiled all day  in the woods; he toiled every day until  he had sufficient wood cut, then he hired  a horse, to be paid for when the wood  was sold. He carted loads to the hotels  and farm-houses where summer boarders were taken. He arose before dawn  and worked in the field and garden. He  cut the hay. He was up half the night  setting the house to rights. He washed  and ironed like a woman. The whole establishment was transformed. He got a  doctor for the sick man, but he gave  small encouragement. He had consumption, although he might linger long.  "Who's going to take care of.the poor  fellow, I don't know," said the doctor.  "I be," said Dick.  "Then there are the children," said the  doctor.  "One of 'em is mine, and I'll take care  of his," said Dick.  The doctor stared, as one stares who  sees a good deed in a naughty world,  with a mixture of awe, of contempt, and  of incredulity. "Well," he said, "it's  lucky you came along."  After that Dick simply continued in  his new path of life. lie worked and  nursed. It was inconceivable how much  the man accomplished. He developed an  enormous capacity for work. In the au:  tumn ho painted the house, the cellar  was full of winter vegetables, the woodpile was compact. The children were  warmly clad, and Lottie went to school.  Her father had bought an old horse for  a song, and he carried her to school  every day. Once in January he had occasion to drive around the other side of  the .mountain wliich he hnd climbed the  niglit of his return. He started early in  the afternoon, thnt he might be in season to go for Lottie.  It was a clear cold dny. Snow wns on  the ground, a deep glittering level with  a hard crust of ice. The sleigh slid over  the frozen surface with long hisses. The  trees were all bare and had suffered  frightfully in thc Inst storm. The rain  had frozen as it fell, and there had been  a high gale. The ice-mailed branches  had snapped, and '.sometime', whole trees.  Dick, slipping along on the white line of.  road below, gazed up at the side of the  mountain. He looked and looked again.  Then ho desisted. He renched over and  cut the horse's back with the reins. "Get  up," he cried, harshly.  The great pine had fallen from his  high estate. He was no more to be seen  dominating the other trees, standing out  in solitary majesty among his kind. The  storm had killed him. He lay prostrate  on the mountain.  And the man on the rond below passed  like the wind, and left the mountain  and tho dead tree behind.���������"Harper's  Bazar."  died when the baby was two months old,  and your little girl Lottie has been taking  care of it.

Suddenly an expression of blank surprise .before an acquisition of knowledge Ame over his face.  "Good Lord I Dick," he gasped out, "it's  all yours. It's nil yours, anyway, now."  "Where's the old "woman ?" nsked Dick,  abruptly, ignoring what the other said.  "Your wife's mother? She died of  pneumonia about two year ago. Your  wife, she took it to heart pretty bad.  She was a heap of help about the children."  Dick nodded. "The old woman always  was smart to work," he assented.  "Yes, and your wife, she wa'n't over-  strong."  "N'ever was."  "Xo,"  "S'pose there was enough to put hei  away decent?"'  "I sold the wood-lot on the back road.  There's a gravestone.

Suddenly that look of surprised knowledge came over his face again. "Lord1,  it's all yours, and the girl's, anyhow,"  he muttered.  "She's been doin' the work?" asked  Dick, pointing to the girl.  "Yes; she does the best she can, but  she ain't very big, and the children ain't  get enough to be decent, and ws oan't  get much cooked."  Dick made a resolute step toward ths  door.  "Where be you a-goin', Dick," asked  the sick man, with a curious wistfulnem.  "You ain't goin' to-ni-jht?"  "What Is there in tne house to eatt"  "What's ia the house, Lottie T'  "There's  some  meal    and   milk   and  eggs,"   answered   the    child,  in   a   high  iweet voice.  "Come here and give us a ki������s, Lottie,"  said Dick, suddenly.  The little girl approached him timidly,  staggering under the weight of the baby.  She lifted her face, and the man kissed  her with a sort of solemnity. "I'm your  father, Lottie," said h������.  The   two   looked   at  each   other,   the  child shrinking, yet smiling.  "Glad I got home?" asked the roan.  "Yes, sir."  Dick went out into the kitohen, and  the children followed nnd atood in the  ioorway watching. He gravely set to  work, with such utensils and materials  is he found, which were scanty enough.  Be kindled a fire, and made a corn cake.  He made porridge for the sick man and  ;arried him a bowl of it smoking-bot.  "Ain't had nothin' like this sence she  lied," said the sick man.  After supper Dick cleaned the kitchen.  Se also tidied up the other room and  node the bed, and milked, and Bpltt some  rood wherewith to cook breakfast.  "You ain't goin' to-night, Dick?" the  lick man said, anxiously; when he came  n after the work was done.  "No, I ain't."  "Lordl I forgot; it's your house," snid  ihe sick man.

We nro only men, mere men, and perhaps our opinions are of no consequence;  therefore'it is with due modesty that I  assert we do not like to hear slang from  maiden lips; Hoth slung and swearing in  any degree are most unprepossessing in a  woman.'- Tlie girl who��������� shouts her "By  Joves!" in the faces of young mon is  usually induced to change her note as  soon ns she is engaged. It is no small  credit to her if she wins a man's love  in spite of her repulsive ������������������ methods of  speech. It is strnngo that^ we should  feel'such distaste at hearing girls use ex-  fressions wc ourselves use so commonly,  can only account for it on the plea  that we aro'oager to fancy that women  ore (as thcy'.ought'to' be) infinitely-our  superiors'��������� in refinement7 and delicacy.  What do wo, inere men think of flirts?  llio girl wlio innocently, exercises the  gifts of magnetism wliich she finds she  possesses over the other sex, and who  innocently rejoices in her talents, is not  a sinner. She may be unwise, oven bluin-  able, but she is not malicious. There are,  however, flirts who seem to take; pica-  sure in bending men on their knees before tlieni and in dismissing Lliem robbed  of some of their self-respect. These arc  cold-hcai'lcd beauties, and to be shunned  by men ns- if tliey were serpents. On  the whole, I think it must be said that  men do not like llirts. it is our busines-i  to woo, not to be wooed. Flirts seem'.'to  rob us of our prerogative. Girls should,  of course, be nicely dressed; but, that,  said, all that need be snid by us on the  subject is snid. Kxtrnvngnht girls suit  few of us. We are tempted to Took askance at girls who conic out every week  in a new-bonnet���������and a bonnet, moreover, "chic" enough to; have cost something handsome. One more matter may  be mentioned. _ It will surprise some of  my readers that we should trouble our-  -sclves about so small a detail. When I  see a girl who treats little children and  babies either with indifference or disdain, I mark her down at once as not  quite the riglit sort of girl; and others  of my sex are quick to notice the same  thing and make thc same estimate from  it.  Schwab's New York Mansion.  Andrew Carnegie's splendid hew residence on Upper ifth avenue is to have a  rival in the home soon to be erected on  the West Side, for his protege, Charles  M. Schwab, president of the United  Stales Steel Corporation.  Plans for Mr'. Schwab's city home have  been completed, and it will cost about  $2,500,000 and stand on a plot for whicli  ifr. Schwab paid .?SU5,000 about a year  ago. House and site, therefore, will represent an investment of more than  $3,350,000. - -T    ..  Ever since the young president of the  billion dollar steel trust bought, the  block bounded by Riverside drive, West  End avenue, Seventy-third and Sevent}'-  fourth streets there has been much speculation as to what he would do with il.  One report was that' he had bought the  land merely as an investment. All doubt  as to his purpose has now been set at  rest and the bureau buildings bave been  'consulted about the final for the mansion  Mr. Schwab: will build..  Following the example of Mr. Carnegie, the steel king will have a city residence with ample ground all about it.  His new home will be 130x100 feet, and  the house will stand in the center of the  block. There will be a fine frontage on  Riverside drive, overlooking the Hudson,  and the grounds oir each- of the other  sides will be laid out-magniflceiitly. The  house will be four stories in height and  is expected to be completed by Christmas next year. The New York Orphan  ���������Asylum, whieh has stood on the site for  many years, is being demolished, and orders have been given that work for Mr.  Schwab's mansion begin at once.

Israel Tarte, the man who  was "master of the administration,"  from 1S96, and who brought the  Liberal party into power, reached the  limit of endurance, and unable to  support tbe Free Trade Protection  policy dished up for the Canadian  people, severed his connection -with  the most noted assemblage of political  demagogues ever gathered together in  Canada.  With   Mr.   Tarte's   departure from  the Liberal council board the "death  knell" ofthe government was sounded.  Liberals, familiar with  Canadian politics, are not  slow   in   admitting that  their party has suffered  a blow from  which   it will   take   years to recover.  The government's policy of catering to  Free Traders and Protectionists, leading each faction  to believe that it had  the sympathy of the administration,  led to internal strife and then to open  discord.     The   climax   was    reached  when the one member of the cabinet  frank enough to support his principles  was ordered   to   retract.     Mr. Tarte's  answer was the placing of his resignations in the hands of the premier.  This, however, was hardly to the  liking of the Premier and his confederates. To get rid of Mr. Tarte  was the object of the campaign of  tirade and abuse inaugurated by the  ministers and their . personal organs  many weeks ago, bub they did not  propose to allow it to appear to the  public, that the Minister of Public  Works threw over the government.   In__order to present as  good a front  as possible to the country, Sir Wilfrid, in a letter dated ' October 21st,  informed Mr. Tarte that a previous  demand for tbe resignation of his  portfolio held good." Fortunately  for Mr. Tarte, his resignation had  predated Sir Wilfrid's letter by  twenty-four hours, proving conclu-  ���������ivelv that it was the former and  not the government who had to  swallow the bitter bill. Mr. Tarte  in a subsequent interview emphatically declared, that it was he who  bad taken the initiative in the step  which divorced him from his former  associates. In other words he  voluntarily repudiated the Laurier  cabinet.  The little.incident shows bow   desperate are the   straits   to   wb'ch   the  government   is   reduced.   At  a  time  when   the   great   tariff    question     is  before the people of  the  country,   the  premier has resorted to most picayune  methods for the purpose   of   milking  capital out of a situation  beneath  the  notice of public spirited men.   It matters Dot how the   break   between   the  parties was affected.    The important  feature is that Mr. Tarte has thrown  down a challenge which  promises to  make good his  threat   of  once   more  defeating Sir Wilfrid.   The   petty act  of ������pite is but a fitting termination of  a campaign of hatred against the man  to whom tbe  Liberal   party   owes   so  mucb, and its   only   result  can   be to  strengthen Mr. Tarte in his advocacy  1   of a high tariff policy for the country.  Mr. Tarte has behind him professions  of suppOTt from   many Liberals.   He  has;placed Sir .Wilfrid  in   a position  The communication is under the  heading, "A word to the Country,"  and is as follows :  "The incident is closed to  the satisfact:on of many people.  "The conservatives rejoice at uiy  resignation. That is legitimate. They  think it will increase their chances of  success.  "What then would an opposition  exist on if they did not have hopes ?  "Some of our political friends hail  my retirement with conteut.  "Others���������and 1 thank them with all  my heart���������have shown me the warmest sympathy.  "I am decidedly oue of  the most  interested parties' in   the   matter.   I  declare myself content.  , *"I leave the cabinet, without regret,  without    pain,     without   bitterness,  against anybody.  "I have tiied to do my duty.  "For more than   six  years  I have  been   in   the   department  of    public  works, I labored hard during the day.  I worked late into the nights.  "I had at heart the advancement of  the great cause of our national means  of transportation. This has beeu the  basic principle of my administration  of affairs.  "The equipment of the port of  Montreal, the principle port of Canada,  is on a fair way to be accomplished.  The bases of a strong organization are  laid.  "During the last six months, the  Grand Trunk has elected its domicile  in the western part of the harbor.  "The Canadian Pacific railway has  located, in the East-find, shops which  will employ from eight to ten thousand  men.  "The harbor board is pursuing wilh  activity, the completion of our  wharves and the construction of an  extensive elevator.  "There remains the construction of  permanent warehouses, and railway  tracks to supply them.  . "The deepening, the widening���������of  the St. Lawrence between Quebec and  Montreal, to thirty feet deep and four  liundred-and- fifty���������feet-wide,-is-half-  finished.  "Tbe department which I have just  left has at its disposal, to finish this  essential work, the finest fleet of  dredges, of tugs, of stone raisers, that  exist on this continent.  "At Sorel the government possesses  a well equipped shipbuilding yard,  able to meet ihe requirements of the  fleet, and to carrv out whatever new  works may be necessary.  "My successor will only have to  obtain from parliament the money  necessary to pay the crews of the fleet  whose work, this year, will represent  about four million cubic yard*.  '���������The capacity of tbe dredges now at  work in the St. Lawrence is over a  million cubic yards per month.

But   why?"   demanded  - Sir  Felix  Felix-Williams.  j| Old   Canon   Kempe   shrug  ged his shoulders. Admiral  Trewbody turned the pages  bt tie Home Secretary's letter. They  pat at the baize-covered table In the  Bnaglatrates" room���������the last of the visiting Justices who met under the old  n*eslme, to receive the Governor's re-  tport and look after the welfare of the  prisoners la Tre_rarrick county jail.  "But why, In the name of common  tore?" Sir Felix persisted.  "I suppose," hazarded the Admiral,  *"_t helps the police in identifying criminals.'**  "But the letter says 'all the prisoners?" Tou don't seriously tell me that  Imyoa* wants a photograph to Identify  tfoaci>������c- Trestze, whom I've committed  & t=t*or* of times If I've committed him  once? And perhaps you'll explain to  ine this further demand for a 'Composite Photograph' of all the prisoners,  male and female. A 'composite photograph'���������have you ever seen one?"  "No," the Admiral mused, "but I see  ���������What the Home Ofiiee Is driving at.  Someone has been persuading them to  test these new theories in criminology  the doctors are so busy with, especially  In Ital7���������"  "In Italy!" plsh'd Sir Felix Fellx-  {PTllllaina.  "ify dear Sir Felix, science has no  taattoaality." The Admiral was a fellow  tof the Royal Geographical Society, and  kept a microscope to amuse his leisure.  "It faas some proper limits, I should  bop������," :Slr Felix retorted. It annoyed  thlm���������a chairman of Quarter Sessions  ijor close upon twenty years���������to be told  fchat the science of criminology was  yet in its Infancy; and he glanced mis-  bhievously at the Canon, who might be  ���������'irupposed to have a professional quar-  fcel with scie'it'.fic men. But the Canon  Vras __ wary fi|;iiter, and no waster of  tK/v-fitj or shr-t.  "Vi'tH. well." ."aid he, "I don't see  .what harm it can do, or what good. If  the Ilome Secretary wants his compos; to photograph, let him have it. The  only question is, have we a photographer who knows how td make one?  Ormust we send the negatives up to  3ST>_i-.,**i-AU?"  So cive visiting jnstices sent fcr the  : local piiotogiupher and consulted him.  lAn*a tie���������belnc & clever fellow���������declared it was : easy enough, a; mere  question of care in superimposing the  ttasslavea. He 4sad never actually made  the experiment: his clients (so he called  his c*ust*omer*a) preferring to be photographed s3ngljr or In family groups.  Bat he asked to be given a trial, and  mn������gssie& (to be on the safe side) preparing two or three composite prints,  between which the Justices might  Choose at their next meeting.  Hiis waa resolved, and the' resolution entered In the minutes; and next  bar tbe photographer set to work.  Some -oi ttie prisoners resisted and  **_made faces' *ln front of the camera,  squinting ana .pulling the most horrl-  fcle moutln. A -female shoplifter, sat  Tmfler protest, Vecause she was not allowed to send home for an evening  gown-But the most consented obe-  ellently, and Jim Treslze even :asked for  ,. et copy to take home to his wife.  The Admiral (who had married late  tn life) resided with his wife and  yanng family in a neat villa Just out-  Bide tha town, where his ho'b'by was to  yrow pelargoniums. The photographer  pissed the scie <iaily on; his way to  ������afi from the prison, and was usually  tailed and catechized on his progress.  ...IB* patience with the recalcitrant  prisoners delighted the Admiral, who  snore than once assured his wife, that  Smlthers was an Intelligent fellow and  finite an artist ln his way. "I wonder  how 5k manages lt,".sald "Mrs. Trew-  fcc-ay. '^he told Baby last autumn that  e. little -btrdj would fly out of the cam-  *ra when he took oft the cap, and everyone allows that the result Is most  lifelike. But I don't like the Idea, and  X think It may Injure his trade."  The Admiral could not always follow Us wife's reasoning. "What Is lt  jrou'-dislike?" lie asked.  "TVell, It's not nice to think of one's  Mdf going Into the same camera ha  tum been using on those wretched prisoners; It's sentiment, I dare say: but  S had the same feeling when he stuck  ^������jPiHarryi8^photographJn__hls____h^wcase  Ut the railway station, among all kinds  ef oWSflfttmble pwtoin, and I re-  _0,nest*ed hire to remove It."  Thi. JLAmlral 4aughed indulgently; being one of those men who And a charm,  teven of subtle flattery, In their wives'  ���������mines*.  "Z. agTee with you." he said, "that it's  sot pleasant to be exposed to public  tgasj. among a crowd of people one  Wroulfl-never think of knowing. I don't  suppose It ������ould actually encourage  Caminarity, at the same time there's an  Ulr o. promiscuity ahout St���������I;, won't"  ���������ay dlsrerpect���������which, ahem, Jars. But  prith: the prisoners it's different���������my  attitude to them is scientific, if I may  oajr so. I look upon them as a race  Apart, almost of another world, and as  ���������och I find them extremely Interesting.  JTbe possibility of mixing with them on  ���������oy tornu ot Intimacy doesn't occur. I  mm aware, my dear," he, wound up,  Bracloasly. "that you women seldom  Understand this mental detachment,  bel.-.s. by nature unscientific and all the  Snore charming for your prejudices."  At the next meeting of Justices,  ISmitfvers the photographer presented  fclm������������lf and produced his prints with a  Kxoiona air of diffidence.  "I Save." he explained, "brought  dree for Vour Worships' selection; and  *eaja honestly assure Your Worship!  Chat my pains have been endless. What  .pixzzies me, however, -is -that although  Mn all three the same ^portraits have  feeea imposed, and In the same order,  Che results are surprisingly different.  ���������JThe cause of these differences I cannot  detect, though I have gone over the  X>rocess several times and step by step;  ���������rat out of some two dozen experiment*  X n������a.y say that all the results answer  .pretty closely lo one another of these  three types." Mr. Smlthers. who had  spent much -time ln rehearsing this  little speech.'handed up photograph No.  1; and Sir Felix adjusted  hia specta-  **vmalnou_*rr* he exclaimed, recoiling.  "The Canon and the Admiral bent over  tt together.  "'.Most repulsive!" said the Admiral.  v "Hwe indeed"���������the Canon waa more  Impressive���������"here. Indeed. Is an object  Season Is the -effects  of  crime.    Is  lt  I������33ibie  that  to   this,  man's  passions  degrade his divinely Inherited fea-  Wsra it not altogether too hor  rible I would have this picture framed  and glazed and hung up in every cottage home ln the land."  "My dear fellow," Interrupted Str  Felix, "we cannot possibly let this  monstrosity go up to Whitehall as representative of the inmates of Tregar-  rick Jail! It would mean an enquiry  on the spot. It would even reflect upon  us. Ours Is a decent county, as counties go, and I protest it -shall not, with  my consent, be injured by any such libel."  Mr. Smlthers handed up photograph  No. 2.  'This looks better," began Sir Felix,  and with that he gave a slight start,  and passed the photograph to the Canon. Thd Canon, too, started, and stole  a quick glance at Sir Felix; their eyes  met.  "It certainly is singular"���������stammered  Sir Felix. "I fancied���������without Irreverence���������but you detected it too," he  wound up incoherently.  "May I have a look?" The Admiral  peered ovor the Canon's head; who,  however, did not relinquish the photograph, but'turned on Smlthers with  sudden severity.  "I presume, sir, tills Is not an audacious joke?"  "I assure Tour Worship"���������protested  tho photographer��������� "I had some  thoughts, of tearing It up, but thought  lt wouldn't be honest."  "You did rightly," the Canon answered; "but now that we have seen it,  I .have no such scruple." He tore the  print across, and across again. "Even  in this," he said, with a glance at the  Admiral, who winced, "we may perhaps read a lesson, or at least a warning, that man's presumption in extending the bounds of his knowledge���������or, as  I should prefer to call It, his curiosity���������  may���������er���������bring him  face to face with  But the Canon's speech tailed oft as  he regarded the torn pieces of cardboard in his hand. He felt' that the  others had been seriously* perturbed  and were not listening; he himself was  conscious of a shock too ; serious for  that glib emollient���������usually so efficacious���������the sound of his own voice. He  perceived that It did not Impose even'  on the photographer. An uncomfortable silence fell on the room.  Sir Felix was the first to recover.  "Put it in the waste-paper basket; no,  in the flre!" he commanded, and turned  to Smlthers. "Surely between/these  two extremes���������"  "I was on; the point of suggesting  that Your Worships would find No. 3  more satisfactory," the photographer  interrupted, forgetting his manner ln  his anxiety to restore these three gentlemen to their ease. ':, His own discomfort was acute, and he over-acted  as a man will who has unwillingly surprised a state secret, and wishes to  assure everyone of his obtuseness.  Sir Felix studied No. 3. "This appears to me a very ordinary photograph. Without being positively displeasing, the: face Is -one you might  pass in the street any day, and forget."  "I hope It suggests no���������no well-  known features?" put ln the Canon  nervously.  "None at all. I think; but see for  yourself. To me It seems���������although  hazy, of course���������the kind of thing the  Home Office might And helpful."  "It is less distinct than the others,"  said the Admiral, pulling his whiskers.  "And for that reason the more obviously composite���������which Is what wo*  are required ' to furnish. No, indeed, I  can find nothing amiss with, it; and I  think, gentlemen, if you are agreed,.we  ���������will forward this print."  No. 3 was passed accordingly, the  photographer withdrew, and the throe  Justices turned to other business, which  occupied them for a. full two hours.  But, I pray you, mark the sequel.  Mr. Smithers, in his relief and delight  at the magistrates' approbation, hurried home, fished out a copy of No. 3,  exposed lt proudly in his shop window,  and went oft to the Pack Horse Inn for  a drink.  Less than an hour later Mrs. Trew-  body, having. packed her family Into  the ' Jingle for their -afternoon's ride  with Miss Piatt, the governess, strolled  down into the town to do some light  shopping; and, happening to pass the  photographer's window, came to a  standstill with a little gasp.  A moment later she entered the shop;  and Mrs. Smithers, answering the shop  bell, found that she had taken the photograph from the window and wasex-  amlnlng-ltieagerly���������������������������-���������- * ^_  "This is quite a surprise, Mrs.  Smithers. A capital photograph! May  I ask how many copies my husband  ordered?"   *  "I'm not aware, ma'am, that the Admiral has ordered any as yet,: though  I heard Smithers say only this morning  as he hoped he'd be pleased with it."  "I think I can answer for that, although he is particular. But Ihappen  to know, he disapproves of these things  heing exposed in the window. I'll take  this copy home with me, If 1 may. Ka3  your husband printed any more?"  "Well, no, ma'arri. There was cne  other copy; but Lady Fellx-Willlams  happened to be passing Just now, and  spied It; and nothing would do but she  must take lt away with I:  r."  "Lady Felix-Williams'!" Mrs. Trewbody stiffened with sudden distrust.  "Now what could Lady Fellx-Wllllams  want with this?"  "I'm sure I can't tell you, ma'am;  but she was delighted. 'A capital likeness,' she said. .'I've never seen a phonograph before that caught Just that  expression of his.' "  "I should very much like to know  What she has to do with hia expression."

E sailed through tho famous  maelstrom, which the ancients  believed guards the entrance to  the sublimest beauty of the fjords of  the Lofoden Islands, and has furnished  so much material for the Imagination  tf the authors of Norwegian legendry  Hnd modern novelists. It Is a reality���������  not one, but several maelstroms actually exist, and any of them will answer the descriptions given by Victor  Hugo, Jules Verne, Edgar A. Poe and  writers of lesser fame. The chief and  n.tt't dangerous is an extraordinary  wmrlpool between the Islands of Mos-  kone and Ttoest, near the southern extremity of the Lofoden Archipelago. It  is called Mosknaes-Strommen. Another, by the Island of Vaero, called the  Snelstrom, . Is almost as ; dangerous  There are many narrow channels? between the mountains where great volumes of water, coming from opponlto  directions, moot as the. tide flows ln  and out. They* form temporary whirlpools twice a day, and (luring tho  spring tides, or when the naturalcur-  rents are accelerated by heavy western  gales, passage Is impossible. No vessel  could survive them. Even whales nave  been caught and whirled around until  they were dead. Between times these  channels look innocent enough. Even  small boats can pass safely through  them at the proper time each day, and  the departure of the mall boats is regulated accordingly, but they have  caused the loss of many lives. Boats  have actually: disappeared, being  sucked Into: the vortex and carried to  the bottom to whirl and whirl and  ���������.whirl until the waters are tired and  flow away, carrying the wrecks and  the bodies of the dead with them on  the undercurrent, to emerge miles and  miles distant.  It is not strange that the ignorant  and superstitious sailors of the Middle  Ages attributed this mighty and mysterious action of the: waters to-supernatural power, and their imaginative  minds, always creating monsters and  miracles out of natural phenomena  which they cannot understand, placed  In them an octopus, whose awful arms  were alwaj's extended to grasp unwary  mariners who were so unfortunate as  ���������to come within his reach. Later writers and more intelligent represented  the maelstrom as a vast caldron In  which the waters revolve with terrific  speed, their centrifugal force extending  a long distance, and gradually drawing  toward the center all who venture  within their power. The mariners  struggle and shriek In vain. The monster Is Inexorable, and when the crisis  comes the vessel* springs out of the  water and then shoots suddenly down  Into the vortex, while the shrieks of  terror and despair are drowned in the  rushing of the hungry torrent and the  howling of  the winds.  The straits are very dangerous, and  all vessels ' are,warned ': to keep out of  them. The notes upon the charts Issued by the Norwegian hydrographlc  office say that "when the wind Is  steady at flood and ebb tide each day,  the whirlpool Is still: for half an hour  or more, when boats may then pass  through, but half way between flood  and ebb tide the passage becomes dangerous, although it can be used by  steamers and large vessels,-when there  Is no wind, for several ho'urs a day.-  Toward the height of the tide, or when  a gale Is blowing, tho water revolves  with a speed of twenty-six miles ;an  hour in mighty whirlpools. In which  the largest steamers would be helpless." -  Concerning King Solomon.  Several statesmen, a newspaper correspondent   or   two.   and  a   deacon   in  one  of Washington ;   City's     churches  were   discussing   various   subjects   of  more or less bearing on a game of pokier which  had  been  played  earlier  in  s,the evening.   It was merely a game for  Sfun, out of deference to the deacon, or  part of  the evening would have been  wasted in conversation; and the deacon  surprised the assembly.  "Were any of you gentlemen aware,"  he said, "that King Solomon waa a  poker-player?"  ''He  couldn't  have  been ; the  wisest  -man-*-if-he-was,-'i-venture&ia;Correspon***_  dent who Is known for his bad luck.  "There Is evidence'that he was. Just  the same,"  insisted the deacon.  "Evidence or testimony?" queried a  statesman, who Is also a lawyer.  "What's the difference?" asked a correspondent.  "Testimony Is a mere statement,  and may be false or true; evidence Is  that by means of which a fact is established.   See?"  "Um���������er," hesitated the deacon, "I  guess all of you will admit Solomon's  tesrtimony as evidence."  "State It," said the lawyer*.-  "Well," exclaimed the deacon, "If  you7 will consult the fourth verse of  the tenth chapter of Proverbs,-written  L...   i*..:r.0 L.^tio.;:,.... ,*.. .. *_i..ccfl 1-j *...e  ��������� flrst..'verse,, you   will   find   this   statement:   'He becometh poor that dcalethV  with a slack hand; but the hand ot the  diligent maketh rich.'

THERE Is a fatality often attending the final stages of the  printing of a book or an article.  Proof after proof has been  corrected with scrupulous care,  and there seems nothing more for author, or proofreader to do, when a line  or*woid falls but, giving an opportunity for some stupendous blunder in setting things straight. The corrector of  lhe press is sometimes himself responsible for a literary atrocity, when some  brilliant flash of stupidity occurs to  him too late to be submitted as a-query  lo the 'poor author. Thus a certain  scholar found the Candlan vessel, in  which he described Beza as voyaging,  transformed Into the anachronism of a  Canadian vessel. Mr. Howells tells us  of the agony he suffered at the discovery of a fearful misprint In his."Pilot's Story." The tale is of a young  planter who has gambled away the  s.avo girl who is the mother of his  child. She breaks out upon him with  the demand:  "What will you say to our boy when  be cries for me there in St. Louis?"  In this form the line passed the author himself* an'd the Ilrst proofreader;  tut the final reader, evidently a pro-  rounccd realist, thought It could be  improved, and accordingly changed it  into:  "What will you say to our boy when  he cries for 'Ma,' there. In St..Louis?"  The whole edition had been struck  off before the enormity was discovered  by Mr. Howells himself, who happened  to call on the publisher just as the  sheets had come in from the printers  at Cambridge, i Mr. Fields at once decided :that the sheet should be reprinted, so Mr. Howells had a hairbreadth escape from a mischance that  might have gone far to ruin his career.

Orleans ''Times-Democrat."'  "But few persons are aware of the  fact;" ; said ..a well-known7 physician  yesterday, "but It Is true, nevertheless,  that the egg of the partridge is one of  the most nutritious things In the world. *  They are not used for eating purposes  except In very rare eases, and then It  generally happens In remote rural districts. I have known negro families  In the State of Louisiana during the  laying season to live on the eggs of  partridges. And they would flourish  handsomely and grow fat on account  of the rich properties of7 the eggs.  These eggs, of course, never find their  way Into the market, because they:are  never taken from their nest except by  such persons as I have mentioned, and  they rob the newts, I suppose,' because  their principal food supply comes from  this source. .Quail meat comes pretty  high In the market at all times, and  the average man will find lt more profitable to spare the eggs and wait for  tlie birds . when the hunting season  rolls around. These men would pas?  a hundred nests ln one day-without  disturbing an egg. The ������port of hunting the birds is an additional Incentive.  The average negro does not, care so  much about this aspect of the case. He  figures that the white man, having the  best gun; and. the best dog, will beat  him to the bird. So he goes after the  eggs. One partridge will lay anywhere  from a dozen to twenty eggs, and a  nest Is a good find. I know of many  families In rural sections who feast on  these, eggs In the laying season. I  have tried the egg myself as an experiment. I found.lt peculiarly rich.  It has a good flavor. Is yery palatable,  and. In fact, Is altogether a very fine  thing to eat. Really, I believe that the  egg has more nutrition In It than the  fully developed bird, but. of course, as  ono of the men fond, of the game in  the field.

The ingenue had smuggled her friend,  the Shakespearian Header, across the  stage and into the first entrance, says  Virginia Tracy/ in Collier's Weekly.  While the overture was going on a  placable gcnUcnian, an Old Stager, stood  by to entertain her. Over their heads  was a frame of photographs, a likeness  of John McCullough conspicuously dividing the centre with a likeness of  Laurence Barrett.  "And you've really played with such  men as those!" siglied tho Sliakcs_>earian  Render.  ' "With both those very men. For a  coincidence.! first saw those two together, liut that night I was in tho  audience."  "It must have been a memorable  niglit!"  "Well, yes, you might call it that. It  wns a long time"'ago."  "Tell me about it," said the Reader,  who wns sentimental. r  "Well,"', said the Old Stager, "thoy  were playing 'Richard III.' tlmt niglit,  and, as McCullough was only doing  Richmond, he was oh the door."  "Ho was what 1"  "On the .door���������to watch the ticket  box, you know. Yon'see, it was their  own venture, iind they -'weren't"; so very  exalted then. Everybody in town know  McCullough, though; there was:* little  bar to one. Bide of thc entrance, I remember, and whenever, a friend came in  or out, or a fellow who wnntcd to bo  seen with a star, McCullough would amble  across  and  have a  drink."  The Shakespearian Render rustled  ���������protostingly. _     '  "I tliiiikv"mysclf it would, have been  better if',Barrett had hnd lliem. Mr.  Barrett was an exceedingly conscientious man, :and the conditions under  which lie was appearing that niglit were  very depressing to him. The stage was  so small that you could scarcely walk  about without turning round, and the  ���������borders (they're the little canvas pieces  of sky that, hang over an ^outdoor set)  were so close above the stage .that  whenever he held his head up it came  in contact with them���������and Barrett  wasn't a tall man, either. And whether  or not it was because the whole town  was in front, they hadn't been able to  get any Biipcrs���������only one. He was a  little, bedraggled, knock-kneed fellow,  and he came on forRichard's* court;: and  for Richard's army and for the citizens  of London.    Melancholy,'wasn't it t  "And you never knew McCullough, so  you don't, know how funny .it was to  him. Every time he went across the  lobby with a friend, and came back to  find Barrett confronted by-that single  super, or pushing a cloud about with  the plume on his helmet and trying to  look unconscious and heroic, McCullough thought it funnier, and funnier.  When at last ho went behind to dress-  for Richmond he was ready., to guy  everything; but passing Mr. Barrett,  and-seeing him so sad and patient and  determined, he-was remorseful. He resolved, out of sheer loyalty, to imitate  that' conscientious spirit.

"Enter  Richmond,  Oxford, Blunt,  Herbert and others, with drums and colors."  The Old Stager smiled.  "Exactly," said he. "Well, McCullough was bent on doing the right thing;  he looked straight ahead of him, and  he looked solemn; he marched on for  that entrance with** a. - regular regal  stride nnd he spoke in that great voice  of his that was fit to stir an army. Altogether, ' he began \to be quite puffed  up with his own good behavior, and  when he came to the peroration, In  God's name,* cheerily - on,. courageous  friends,' he swung martially, round to  wave on his 'drums, colors,' etc., and ho  discovered in their place only that one,  same knock-kneed super thnt a moment  before had been trundling" after Barrett  as the opposing ar.nyl It was too much  for McCullough. He took one good long  look at the man, and then he waved  hia sword again,'and, said'he, 'Come on,  my solitary friend, ..we'll lick* all England!' The audience rose at him with  Joy, hut they tell me Barrett was Kko  to die of it."  ���������  A Forcible Illustration. -  That very forcible illustration of the  duration of eternity which 1 quoted last  week haB been fal.iy cappediby Mr. Geo..

One of  them, called "Through Nature to God,"  came to my mind as I stood the'other  day on a mountain peak which risea  lilt* an observatory in the centre ot  one of the most beautiful valleys in the  'Adirondacks. High on the skyline the  giant hills and mountains swept around  the horizon, broken by the great peaks  of the stupendous range soaring into  the September blue. At my feet lay  lakelet and* river, farmstead and town,  as far as the eye could see.  "Wo praise thoe, O .God, we acknowledge thee to be the Lord" sprang  Instinctively'to my lips as_I "surveyed  the glorious panorama.

Ji Hardy, M.A.,  an army chaplain, which has just been  issued by T. Fisher Unwin, 11 Paternoster Buildings, London. From it may  be gleaned a few anecdotes. For ill-  stance :���������  "Men enlist for the queerest reasons.  One I knew did so in order to learn to  read and write ln a military school.  .When a boy he had always bean a truant  from school, nndj when he grew up he-  was ashamed of liis ignorance, and hoped  to get a slight tincture of learning in  the army. Another "who knew that ho  would soon die of consumption became  a soldier to have thc honor of a military funeral. How he managed to" pass  the medical inspection Is'unknown to me.  Probably he passed himself olT for another man."  The, last sentence, by the way, is as  good a bull as ever emigrated from Ireland.     Again :���������  "There is no hypocrisy in soldier.-. Indeed, if 'there is any -ninkc-bcKevo in  them, it is to appear worse than they  are, rather than better. An illustration  of the diroctnessand want of deceit in  soldii-rs came to my nolicc when I was  stationed at ' Portsmouth:. Troopships,  thenuscd to come it>,tliut port. A still  ofiicer there was superintending the disembarkation of time-expired, men. Invalids a'nd'other soldiers from a troopship which.had j'.isl arrived from-Inrliar  Thc ollicer went up to .a-parly of men  who-were drawn up oh the jetty wait-,  ing for orders to - proceed, and asked  thrni, 'Who arc you, nnd what are you  doing here?' 'Please,* 6*ir,, we are the  lunatics 1' was the startling answer."  "A (.entry slopped the carringe of-a  lai'y * generally well ' known, but not  known to him, which was out of order,  on the night of a Court ball. The lady  put her head out of the' window and  told the faithful Tommy .that ahe was  tho wife of a. Cabinet Minis'tcr. ..'Beg  pardon, ma'am,' was the reply, 'but I  could not let you pass even if you were  the wife of .a Presbyterian minister.'" '  '.'When.I. was a "chaplain at Netlcy  Hospital'I used to spend' nearly all my  winter evenings ,talking to the men as  we sat at the fire in the different wards.  Their conversation was "most interest'  ing. Many had come back from active  service in the'Soudan and ln Burma, and  not a, few were recovering from wounds.  There were some very curious cases". Ona  poor boy had the lingers of one hand  cut- off, all on account-of the-Queen's  Jubilee. The connection is not very evident;: 'but' it" is this. To impress the  Burmese with the Jubilee of 1SS7. an  amnesty was given to all of them who  were In prison on a certain day. Some  of them, instead of being* grateful for  their freedom, quite, resented it. They  had-.never been,so well*treated in their  lives as in a prison under British management, so in order to get back again  they'resolved tocorimit a crime. Unfortunately' for' the "drummer boy, the  crime selected was to" tie him to a tree  and-_cut_offihis_finger3.'i.  General -Hector Macdonald walked  barefooted into Glasgow, and enlisted in  the'02nd Highlanders.- When the Colonel made him, a sergeant he told him  to remember that a sergeant of.the 02nd  Highlanders "is 'equal to "a member of  Parliament." "Fighting Mac" learned to  govern by flrst learning to obey. One  day during a march he heard two or  three "Gyppy" soldip'8 saying, "Wait till  .tlie next .fight, and I will take , care  that this slave-driverl.bf'a Colonel' does'  not_come out alive., I .myself will shoot  him." Macdonald recognized the men by  their voices, called, a nalt,'and. ordered  the culprits to step out from the ranks.  Facing them, .he cried, "Now, you are  the' men who are go\ _? to shoot,me'in.the  next fight. Why wait so long? Why not  do it now? Here I am, shoot me���������if you  dare!"'        :' ' .  The following is ti M by Mr. Frederick  Treves, one of the "minent consulting  surgeons who went t������ the war:���������"I can  say that when our so'diers were brought  from the field wo"ndod they were  plucky, patent and uncomplaining. Their  unselfishness wns' manv times very marked. An orderly was b"inging some water  to .a wounded man l'ing on the .ground  near me. He was sint through the abdomen, and,he. could'Vnrdly.speak.owing  to the dryness of his mouth] but he said,  "Take it"tb~.my pal first ; he is worse  hit than me.' This -renerous lad died  next morning, hut his pal got through  and is doim? well."  '  And finally,.in discussing the first presentation of. the A ictoria Cross Mr.  Hardy says that "a story is told which  ���������illustrates -the" obtuscness or. the diplomacy of the Secretary of State for  War. Lord rnnmurc. Talking to liim  just after the' function,. Mrs. Norton  asked.*' 'Was the Queen touched?* 'Blcs3  my soul, no!' was the reply; 'she had a  brass railing before her, and. no one  could touch her.' Mrs. Norton then said.  'I mean, waB she moved?' 'Moved,' "answered Lord Panmure; 'she' had no occasion to move!' Mrs. Norton then gave  it up in despair."  Nellie���������Do you think Paul cares for  Mamie!

This was. a record-breaker.for me. Of  course, on its face such a charge could  not be passed; so I ordered a letter to  be sent to'.the officer asking for an explanation. The answer arrived in due  lime, quite in the style of the bluff old  fellow who wrote it.

After long trying in vain 1 at last captured the scoundrel, and to make an  impression on the people of the country  all around there I resolved to do something with him a little out of the ordinary. I sent out a general invitation to  the peaceful inhabitants who had suffered at ".his hands to come nnd bear  testimony at his trial,, wliich I held in  the Village of Ballygoo, in tlie open air,  and made as public as possible, and  conducting it on the general lines of a  criminal* court in a civil community. I  detailed the men in my' command who  knew most about law to serve "as Judge,  prosecuting attorney and counsel for  the defence, and imnnnelled a jury from  the most intelligent material I could  find. I-'-was resolved that the fellow  should not enjoy the honor of anything  like a soldier's-.trial or. suffer anything  like a soldier's 'death���������that would have  been too good for him.  "'He was convicted and sentenced to  be hanged; but ye had nor an ofiicer or  an enlisted ,man at hand "who knew hew  to do the job properly. I wns told that  a civilian who lived back in the hills  had once worked as a Sheriff's assistant and helped three or four murderers  out of the world. So I sent for him and  struck a -bargain to hang our prisoner  for $10, including the loan of a rope. I  .suppose the'whole thing was irregular,  but I was resolved to do it in an artistic manner; and the good effect of my.  policy is shown by the fact that my  -command has suffered no molestation  from brigands since.'  - ."It was a strong plea, and appealed  to me. But how were we to straighten  the' account out so as to make it superficially correct ? A clerk at my elbow  suggested a solution in a pencilled memorandum : 'Have item made charge on  quartermaster, for emergency transportation of. A - B������������������, Ballygoo* to Gehenna, by most direct route, distance  unknown; attach order of commanding  officer for execution, . to prove that  transportation was necessary and for  the good of the service.'  ,*Tt was done," and,the historian who  overhauls the archives of that period  will find the papers 'there, and may  draw his own-conclusion."  Set Sam on Them.  /."Travelling on the steamer_Northunt-  'berland on' the ' Rappahannock "River  last week," said the Rev. E. B. Bagby  of Ninth Street Cnristian Church, according to" The Washington Post, "I fell  in with a. group of ministers on the up-  , per deck, and soon we were. swapping  stories. The eccentricities of the famous evangelist, Sam Jones, proved ; a  prolific topic. The, Rey. Mr. Butts, a  Methodist, minister, from,. Gloucester  County, said that the only time lie had  ever know Sam to "be disconcerted was  at H , Va., where he had been called  to conduct a'union revival. ,The first  night of the meeting the pastors of the  different churches were on the platform  and crowds filled the pews. All were  looking for"'something sensational and  were not disappointed. Evangelist Jones  arose, turned to the Methodist, preacher  "and "said-:���������~     "     ������������������*"'���������' j*^-^  "'Brother S.,  h-*w,   many, members  have you in your church?'

Tige; sic 'em, Tige.*  " 'Excuse me. Brother Jones,* said the  Methodist minister, rising and stepping  forward, *but that is just what we have  done. We have ga*hered the peoprt  together. Now, 'Sic 'em, Sam; sic 'em,  Sam.'"  "If Mr. Jones was not himself the  balance of the evening, it was probable  that he was thinking of the hound dog."  A Curious Shot. .-  A friend of mine, writes a contributor  to. Navy and Army, returning to camp  after a day's shooting, suddenly came in  sight of a big she-bear with two cubs  following in single'file, proceeding along  a ridge, the forms' of the three' being'  sharply silhouetted against the sky. It  was a very long shot, but he determined  to try it, so drew a bead on the old she-  bear and fired. The result was curious.  The procession stopped, the she-bear  scratched herself hastily, then _ turned  around, and, regarding the cub immediately bdtind with grave disapproval,  boxed its cars soundly, and'then went  trundling on along the ridge, evidently  under the impression that her frolicsome  offspring had been up to some unusually  .Qfeiectjonsble. fjicfcs.  The Cedrlo Launched.  The launch of the Cedric has caused  the English newspapers to make some  comparisons  between  her  and  the  big  German  liner,  the  Kaiser  Wilhelin  II.,  which was launched a few days earlier.  Like her somewhat smaller sister ship  thc Celtic, than which she measures only  00 gross tonB more, tbe Cedric is meant  to steam at seventeen knots, says The  Daily Graphic:   "But the latest example  of  the  'Flying  Dutchman'  will,   it    is  hoped, lower the Deutschland's record of  23 1-2 knots; in other words, the Kaiser  Wilhelm II. iB intended to steam at 23  1-2 to 24 knots.   To maintain this speed  she will be equipped with four sets of  quadruple  expansion  ' engines,   working  twin  screws, and collectively equal    to  developing 40,000 horse-power���������the highest, power al yet put into any ship. To  obtain her mora  modest 17  knots tho  Cedric will have twin-screw engines, also  quadruple expansion, one set   to   each  screw, and collectively equal to 14,003  horse-power,  and   similar  in  every   respect to those of thc Celtic, the coal consumption of which is 260 tons   a day.  Based  on  these figures���������and    no  more  economical machinery than the Cedric's  has yet been designed���������it is evident that  to get her 24 knots the German  ship  will  burn  the  stupendous  total of  750  tons of coal a day.   As a matter of fact,  space is' provided in her bunkers for no  less than  5.G00 tons of coal���������an    item  which  alone' represents  the  cargo  of a"  good-sized "tramp.'    But this is not the  only penalty the speedy ship must pay  for her prestige.   For while the crew of  the Cedric will number-33.-) men, of whom  92   will   be   in   the   engine   and     boiler  rooms,   the   ship's   complement  of    the  Kaiser  Wilhelm  II. will consist of; COO  persons, of whom no fewer than 277 will  be in'the engineer's department.    And,  as  indicating how little theso    modern  floating hotels resemble ships,  it is interesting  to.note.that  only  43 out of  the  000  persons   to' be  carried  on  the  latest flyer will be entered on the ship'3  books as 'sailors.'    Thanks to the" enormous nmount of spnee occupied by  her"  machinery  and    bunkers,  the    German  ship will never carry an ounce of cargo,  and for the same reason her passenger  accommodation will be limited    to providing places for a total of  1,SS8.    For  the purpose of comparison it needs but  be said that accommodation will be provided on the Cedrie for 2,900 passengers.  "And assuming that the German ship  was intended,- like her English competitor, to be a ca'rgo-carrier, it will be seen  from the following brief comparison    of  their leading dimensions how    ill-fitted  she is even-for that purpose. For though  the - Cedric  is   the   largest   ship   alloat,  her length, 700 feet, is 0 feet 0 inches  short of that of the Kaiser Wilhelm 11.  But what the latest racer gains in length  is  lost  in- her  inferiority   in   breadth,  72 feet, as against the Cedric's 75 feet,  and in  her  lesser, depth.    And thus it  comes about  that while the Cedric  at  her load draught of 36 feet 6 inches will  displace 38,000, tons,  her speedier-German  rival,  at .'her load draught  of  29"  feet, will displace only 20,000 tons. Without going into technicalities, it may "be  here  stated that  if the draught of.  a  ship be increased proportionately to the  increase of the other dimensions, cargo  can be carried at a steadily decreasing  cost as the size of the ship    increases.  So, even if the two vessels had been constructed  for. the , same    purpose    and  speed, the Cedrie would have done her  work more economically.   From the foregoing    it    will     be     seen    .that   tho  Kaiser      Wilhelm      II.    --will   ._   have  only      one      advantage       .over      the  Cedric, . namely,    that    of    speed.    To  build she has cost near about   ������1.2i>0,-  000," or probably 20    to   25 per   cent,  moro than the English ship. <To  gain  her 40 per cent, in speed she will burn  190 per cent, more coal, and must forego the carrying of-10,000 to 12,000 tons  of cargo and 1,012 passengers'each voyage, notwithstanding which she requires  205 more hand3 in her crew to .work,her.  The 'express' boat may.bring,kudos to  her owners, but'we must candidly "say  we fail to see by process of "reasoning  how, she can be  said  to    bring    them  profit. *. , -   *>,  'Wire Worm and Spider.  *- An entirely unveracious despatch to  The New York Sun from* Orono,.Maine,  says :���������''The average Maine farmer admits of no limitations to the possiblli-,  ties of science," said Prof. Coyne of the  University of Maine. ."This " summer,  while passing-my vacation In the northern part of the State looking for rare  plants to add to the herbarium, a man  who owned a large farm, and who was  making money fast, asked me about  the way we handled an electric plough.

While  this may be true, we Save heard nothing about it. and it sounds suspiciously  like paper bicycles and other things  of like order, which seem to exist only  tn the minds of newspaper reporters.  The British Eastern Australasian and  China Telegraph company filed a claim  with the State Department of the  United States for S36.000 damages for  cutting Its "cable by- Admiral Dewey  at Manila last May. The United States  Attorney-General has now rendered a  decision finding that, according to International law, there was no ground  for a claim for Indemnity where a  military commander cuts a cable within the territorial waters of an enemy.  Petit Bleu, of Brussels, recently had  a curious experience In which It was  shown that no one is lndlspenslble in  this world. The compositors having  struck, the text accompanying the ll-.  lustrations was written out on the  typewriter; then . the typewritten Bheets and the copy for  the pictures were pasted on large  Bheets of cardboard and the whole was  reduced by photography to the required size. From this negative a photoengraving was made from which the  paper was printed.  The authorities of the Southern Metropolitan Gas company, an English  corporation, have added workingmen  directors to the board of the company.  The report stated that the profit sharing system, which was introduced in  1889. continues to justify Its existence,  as It Induces a generally Intelligent Interest in the welfare of the company  on the part of its officers and men.  Two of the workmen were elected by  the workmen shareholders to sit on  the board, and the result so far has  proved  very satisfactory.  According to The Medical Sentinel,  It has been ascertained by careful observation that -.certain families In a  village of St. Ourn, France, enjoy absolute Immunity from tuberculosis.  They are gardeners of excellent habits  who intermarry among themselves and  keep apart from the Immigrant laborers. .The latter suffer severely from  the disease. It is considered probable  that hygienic conditions are not the  sole cause of the difference, but that  by a kind of natural selection a race  Immune from tuberculosis has been developed.  Caisson disease, or compressed air  disease, Is a malady which is often  contracted by those who are engaged  In engineering work in positions where  they are subjected to great air pressure. Dr. Thomas Oliver has observed  several cases of this kind, and he has  arrived at the conclusion that the  symptoms are best explained by the  theory that the malady Is due to increased solution by the blood of the  gases met with It ln compressed air,  and the liberation o'f these gases during decompression. The increased solution of-the gases Is due, of course, to  the greater pressure upon the person  of the caisson worker.

KootPiiay, being j.lined in the morning  by the party fiom Revelstoke and  proceeded to Nelxon to he present ut  the annual meeting of fhe slock holdeis  of the Northwestern Development  Syndicate which was held on Friday  morning last, a report of which  appears in the Nelson News of S ilur-  ilay as follows:  "The meeting of the Northwestern  Development Syndicate shareholders  yesterday resulted in lhe election of a  new board of directors. Al llu,in. the  retiring board held a moel ing, at. which  illl business was wound up for the past  yeai' preparatory to the general meeting in the afternoon. At 2.30 the  shareholders meeting was held in the  board of trade rooms and was attended  hy all the visiting shareholders and a  number of local men. Reports were  read and the. following hoard was  elected: A. J. Scott, president; II. B.  Curtis, vice president; M, R. Golds-  worthy, secretary; M. C. Getchell,  treasurer; H, Z. Brock, general man'  uger; .1. T. Fisher, XV, II. Dodge, F. G  Mayworm. John B. Curtis, C. D.  Ilanchefcte and C, S, McKenzie. The  local members of the old board were  Dr. G. A. B. Hall, 3. Fred Hume, P.  Lamont and A. F. Rosenberger.  "After the return of the "Michigan  excursionists there were rumors going  the rounds to the effect that'they had  been dissatisfied with some of the  matters connected with the company.  After the meeting of the shareholders  these rumors solidified to the effect  that the trouble was regarding the  Eva mine, which'.hudnot beeu regarded  locally as having anything to do with  the Northwestern people.  "A. J. Scott, president of the com*  pany, was seen by a representative of  The Daily News and asked if the  Calumet & Brilish CohimbiaGoUlfields  and the Northwestern Development  were connected in any way. "No,"' he  replied; "they have nothing whatever  to do with each . other. The North  western has been in existence for some  time when Mr. Rosenberger floated  Lhe Calumet & British Columbia, but  lhe stock of the latter company was  underwritten by practically Lhe same  people* who controlled the former.  After the stock was placed on tbe  market SOO.OOO shares were sold in a  few hours. Afterthestockhadbeensold  we considered tlie matter, and were  not satisfied with the terms. It was  necessary for five of the Northwestern  directorstncomeoutany way to attend  the annual meeting, so an excursion of  underwriters and shareholders was  arranged to come at the same time.  After coining out the conditions were  found to be still more unsatisfactory  and it was decided to throw up the  underwritten stock and return the  money to those,who had subscribed.  Word to this effect was accordingly  Tvir^d~to"6u"r"agents"in"Michigan7r-As to  what will be done with the stock of the  Calumet & B. O. I cannot say, Mr,  Rosenberger may of course sell it elsewhere. As regards the countrv, there  was not one of the party who was not  delighted with it. and with the most  enjoj-able trip. The mines we visited  were, I believe, very good, and we are  thoroughly satisfied with our property,  the Camborne group at Goldfields."  ���������*H. 7, Brock, managing diiectnr of  the Noi*lhwe*-lein Development Syndicate, in answr to tin* tiiiiii*** question  regaiding thf companies as was put. tn  Mr. Scott said: "They urn entirely  separate. The only connection that  there hit*, been between them was in  the fact t hut. ihe Northwestern held n  bond on the Eva mini*. which  was surtenderi'd on Septembrr  20th tn lhe O-ilnmet k SI. C. The  direitor*. of the Northwestern were  theprincip.il underwi iters of the new  coiiipaiij*. li was d.'iided by them to  come out here to inspect the Caniboriie  group and at. the sami" time to arrange  some matters about the Eva. After  nn inspection of Lhe property the  underwriters decided to ihrow np  what they had taken. There will also  be an entire change of conditions  regarding the property.'"  In regard to the Eva mine, of which  there bus been so much said of late*  the underwriters who inspected the  propel ty were perfectly well satisfied  with it in almost every respect, but  they were decidedly opposed to the  terms of the board, and in consequence  of lhat were obliged to throw up the  underwritten stock and return the  money, as staled above hy Mr. Scott  to a reporter of the Nelson News.
